Cleveland Golf announces new launcher woods and irons

By: August 14, 2017

I got used to it that golf equipment manufacturers in this part of the golf season usually come up with limited edition golf club models. This is why interesting the announcement of Cleveland Golf. Cleveland Golf’s new woods and irons will be launched in North America on September 15, 2017. The Cleveland Golf Launcher Woods and Irons will be available for pre-sale at select retailers on Aug. 28, 2017.

The other recent exception is the Scotty Cameron Futura 5.5M putter.

Let’s see what are the key technology changes and innovations in the new Cleveland Golf Launcher CBX  and HB irons and Cleveland Golf Launcher HB Woods.

In the Cleveland Golf Launcher HB Woods we will find:

  1. New HiBore Crown: promotes higher ball speed through the crown flexing at impact and a desirable high-launch, low-spin trajectory from a lower COG. The new HiBore Crown brings the entire crown down by 5mm lowering the weight and promoting a high-launching ball flight.
  2. Unique Flex-Fins compress at impact transferring more energy back to the ball, especially on heel and toe impacts.
  3. New Launcher Cup-Face creates higher COR across the entire face for unmatched ball speed and distance. The Launcher Cup Face features extremely thin, high-strength titanium.
  4. Ultra-lightweight hosel design redistributes weight low and deep for a higher launch and more forgiveness. The Launcher HB Woods thus achieve a better center-of-gravity location to provide more forgiveness and a higher launch.
  5. Miyazaki C. Kua shaft – they were using premium Toray T1100 Carbon Fiber to achieve more consistency and accuracy.

Cleveland Golf says that its new Cleveland Golf Launcher HB Woods are going further (219 yards) than TaylorMade M2 (216.5 yards), Callaway XR (216 yards) or even PING G (214 yards). The news Cleveland Golf Launcher HB Woods shows cca. 62% accuracy. In terms of accuracy, the second best is PING G (cca. 58%).

Cleveland Golf CBX Irons

Cleveland Golf CBX Irons

We can find 5 innovations in the new Cleveland Golf  CBX Irons:

  1. Tour Zip Wedge Grooves + Double Laser Milling maximize spin from the rough. The Launcher CBX Iron grooves are identical in shape to the industry leading RTX-3 and Cleveland CBX wedge grooves.
  2. V-Shaped sole brings wedge turf interaction to irons.
  3. New Cup-Face design creates higher COR across the face.
  4. Feel Balancing Technology shifts the sweet spot closer to your impact location for less club rotation, better feel, and improved ball speeds.
  5. Progressively designed shape creates low-profile, easy-to-hit long irons and more compact.
The Launcher CBX face is designed to minimize spin drop-off when going from fairway to rough conditions. Double laser milling increases the face roughness for an even more consistent spin.  Weight was moved from the hosel toward the center of the club to better align the sweet spot with our impact pattern.
The new Cleveland Golf CBX irons are available with 2 kinds of shafts:
  1. Steel: New dynamic Gold DST 98;
  2. Graphite: Miyazaki C. Kua.
